Junior-middleweight Samuel Vargas returned from a one year absence and remained undefeated scoring a 7th round TKO victory over Julius Bunda (5-3-2 3KO) in the headline event at the 28th annual Shaw Festival at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The Colombian born Vargas who calls Mississauga home has been on a tear since the only blemish occurred with a majority draw in early 2011, the fighter now has five straight stoppages after starting his career with just one in his first eight fights.
Vargas dominated the scheduled ten-rounder pretty much from the opening bell, rattling Bunda with a sweeping right hand to end the stanza. A steady diet of solid body work was served up by Vargas, slowly withering a beleaguered Bunda as the match progressed.
The Kitchener fighter looked as if he was ready to go at the end of the 6th as Vargas raked him along the ropes. The storm kept coming in the 7th with Bunda wilting under the steady barrage and under the steady barrage and unable to answer back with anything meaningful.
Rebounding from his only career loss, Tyler Asselstine (13-1 7KO) got back on the winning track with a 79-73, 78-74 79-73 unanimous decision over former world title challenger Olivier Lontchi (18-3-2 8KO) who was coming off over a two year layoff and now has three successive losses. Asselstine gets back on track and helps make up for a close split decision loss earlier this year to Baha Laham.
Lightweight Mohammed Abedeen made his pro debut a successful one winning a decisive 40-36 unanimous decision on all three cards over James Bishop to get action underway in Toronto at the 28th annual Shaw Festival.
